Kudos to Roy Costner IV

I want to say thank you and God bless you to Roy Costner IV. He is an 18 year old Valedictorian from Liberty High School.

He had the courage to add the Lord's Prayer to the end of his Valedictorian speech at his graduation. His principal had approved the speech and said he was not allowed to have any religious expression in it. He added the prayer without their prior knowledge.

The school has not and does not appear to have any intention to do anything about it. In fact, the way I read it they are non-vocally in support of it. The only ones who really seem upset by it is Freedom From Religion Foundation who says it was rude and inconsiderate of non-Christians. Personally, I think banning God is rude and inconsiderate to Christians. But I am not here to get into that.

I want to give a shout out to Roy. If he continues with this level of conviction God will use him for great things. If we, as Christians, could all stand for God like this I think His presence would be much stronger in this country.
